Reasons to Desire this Hourglass

"Forever is Composed of Nows." - Emily Dickinson

The Experimentum Minute Sand Timer is hand-crafted from a single antique thread spool used in the Victorian era in cotton and wool production. The hundred year old wood and brass bears a heritage of different marks and knocks which contribute to the little timer's grand story. Every single one is different.

Is it not truly incredible to think that one of your very ancestors might have worn cloth woven by spools such as this?

A unique piece which combines usefulness, history and British industrial heritage.

The sand timer's journey of over a hundred years now continues with you.
